Table of contents[Hide][Show]

No matter what console you’re on, playing a war game can be one of the most fulfilling things around due to how diverse they can be and how easy they are to dive into. With that in mind, if you’re a PS4 owner, and want some war-time action, here are some titles to consider. Here are our picks for the best PS4 military war games available now and coming soon.

#10 Six Days In Fallujah

We’re starting out with a war title that is coming soon and is aiming to change how you experience war titles.

Six Days In Fallujah gives you a look into the battles that happened in Iraq during the recent war, and not just the standard recrafting of events–these are accounts given to you by those who were there narrating their own stories. You won’t just be soldiers either; you’ll be playing as civilians at times in order to fully grasp just how horrifying these battles and fights for survival were.

Add to that a special system that ensures that every single time you play, meaning that the level layout will be different. Just like a soldier on the ground or a civilian trying to survive, you’re going to have to adapt to survive.

#9 Battlefield V

Battlefield V is a first-person shooter game developed by DICE and published by Electronic Arts. It is the sixteenth installment in the Battlefield series and the successor to 2016’s Battlefield 1. The game is based on World War II and is a thematic continuation of its World War I-based precursor Battlefield 1. The game focused extensively on party-based features and mechanics, scarcity of resources, and removing “abstractions” from game mechanics to increase realism. There is an expanded focus on player customization through the new Company system, where players can create multiple characters with cosmetic and weapon options.

#8 Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown puts you into the pilot seat of a jet and in intense combat both in the single-player and multiplayer modes. 360 battles will be happening all around you and you’ll need to be a true Top Gun in order to survive. So mind your radar, and be prepared to get into some twisted motions in order to shoot down your foe. Those more interested in air combat exclusively won’t want to miss this latest installment of the Ace Combat series.

#7 Call of Duty: Vanguard

call of duty has seen countless titles since the franchise started. Call of Duty: Vanguard is one you’ll want to check out, even if it’s just to see what it does differently.

With Call of Duty: Vanguard, we have a title that focuses on both single-player and multiplayer gameplay. In the story, you’ll play as five different characters during various points in the war. These unique characters are captured by the AXIS powers and are trying to get out while flashing back to what brought them to that point.

When you’re done with the story, the multiplayer has all the hallmarks you’d expect, including the beloved Zombies mode and new maps to try out in multiplayer.

#6 Call of Duty: Warzone

The battle royale genre has taken the video game industry by storm. One of the most popular in recent memory is Call of Duty: Warzone released in March of 2020. This is your typical battle royale set within the call of duty universe. Players have the ability to customize their character and loadouts a bit before dropping into a massive map and trying to demolish the competition.

Like other games in the genre, players will be exploring the map, gathering resources, and fighting off other players. There are a few different game mode options allowing you to play solo or in duos, trios, or quads. The development studio has been updating the game regularly to ensure that bugs are fixed as soon as possible.

#5 War Thunder

For those wanting to try a game before grabbing their wallet, the free-to-play War Thunder is worth a shot. Despite being almost ten years old, the award-winning multiplayer title remains one of the most addicting flying simulation titles out there and has grown to support crossplay across nearly every platform on the market. The game’s Aviation mode is divided between fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters, and players can choose between many different modes of combat, from more realistic to more over-the-top.

#4 Tannenberg

War games can place you into some of the key battles and battlefields of history to give you a small taste of what really went on. If you look at Tannenberg, you’ll see a unique experience from the battles of WWI. Players will also engage in massive battles against other players in order to have a true battlefield experience that is both wild and unpredictable.

Tannenberg will have you going up against 64 total players at times. Add to that a menagerie of authentic weapons of the time and you’ll see exactly why many are high on this game series and are eagerly awaiting the next entry.

#3 Enlisted

Enlisted is a very different game than the ones we’ve already talked about, mainly because of the focus of the gameplay.

This squad-based MMO is based around major World War II battles and was developed by Darkflow Software. When it launched, Listed was timed exclusive on Xbox consoles with a closed Beta going live on PS5. The next month, an open beta became available for PC players. Listed has players control an infantry squad or a vehicle’s crew. The squads are made up of 4-9 soldiers of varying classes, equipped with class-restricted weapons such as rifles, submachine guns, machine guns, sniper rifles, mortars, anti-tank weapons, or flamethrowers.

#2 Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2

Maybe traditional shooting is getting shooting. If that’s the case, Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 might be more up your alley. Unlike everything else on this list, it revolved around stealth-driven gameplay through the use of a sniper as your main asset. True to its name, the act of sniping is fully fleshed out with elements such as bullet drop and wind direction having an impact on your gameplay. Check it out if you’re in the market for a slower-paced, single-player game.

#1 Wolfenstein Series

There have been a lot of games reborn in the modern console ages, but one franchise that has benefitted from the advancements in technology and gameplay structure is Wolfenstein.

In these titles, you’ll play as William “BJ” Blazkowicz, a soldier in a world where the AXIS powers won World War II, changing the very course of history. Now, you must help build up the resistance and take the fight to them before things get even more out of control. You won’t just go to the classic Europe locations either–you’ll go to a new version of the US, to space, and plenty of places in between.
